The Cut Chair provides a stable place to sit, but creates an optical illusion that tells you otherwise.
A plate concealed by a thick carpet allows a robust cantilevered seat. Three well placed leg “stumps” and the chair looks as though it has just been magically sliced apart.
The art and architecture firm Lead Pencil Studio created this fantastic piece at the U.S.-Canada border crossing near Vancouver. Called Non-Sign II, the piece is a lattice of stainless steel rods that carve out the shape of a traditional commercial billboard in negative space.
Lead Pencil Studio’s Daniel Mihalyo sheds light on the concept:
Borrowing the effectiveness of billboards to redirect attention away from the landscape… this permanently open aperture between nations works to frame nothing more than a clear view of the changing atmospheric conditions beyond.
但知道佢係一件art之後就覺得幾好,運用negative space去做ge billboard x architecture~
